apt-get -s install sun-java6* produces a list of sun-java6 packages to
install, but then ends with this:

Some packages could not be installed.  This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created or
been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extreemenl;y likely
that the package is simply not installable and a bug report against that
package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
   sun-java5-fonts: Conflicts: ttf-lucida
   sun-java6-fonts: Conflicts: ttf-lucida
E: Broken packages

I'm not sure why java5 was included here, since I asked for java6,

Is it safe to install these packages and then run apt to fix the broken
package?  Or should I install each sun-java6 package separately (I'm not
sure this would help anything, but if it's been done before as a
solution, then I'm ok with trying it)...

I've looked around a bit for this, and the 5 hits I found in google were
ftp files referencing package lists, which didn't seem to point me
anywhere that made sense to me.

Thanks, as always for the input.
